Preservation Matters worked with residents of 2101
Connecticut Avenue to oppose the conversion ot twin
townhouses immediately behind the building. As originally
designed, the project threatend the historic integrity of both
the townhouses and the neighbhorhood, as well significantly
blocked vistas from 2101 Connecticut Avenue. The result was
that project was ultimately redesigned to lower, with more
inset, and better complement its original builidngs historically.
St. Thomas Church/Church Street Park. 18th Street,
When the residents of the quaint neighborhood on the 1700
block of Church Street learned of the plan to sell the park to a
developer and construct an 8-story condo building and new
church on the site, they contacted Preservation Matters. We
were successful in helping the neighbors to get modifications
in the project's height and setback. For a history of the
project's site, see Stephen Hansen's artilce in The InTowner,
2341 Ashmead Place, NW, Washington, DC
Preservation Matters recently worked with neighbors and the
ANC to help reduce the footprint and height of an historic
alley-side addition for a multi-unit condominium conversion.
Work involved advising on preservation guidelines, strategy
development, and the preparation of testimony before the
Historic Presevation Review Board (HPRB).
